Hello,I will do my best to help you with this.Do you happen to know whether your property has been registered with the land registry?
Hello,I cannot be certain if my property has been registered with the land registry, I presumed it would have been registered when the deeds were handed over. But if this is not the case then i cannot be certain if my property has been registered.
OK.The first step is to establish whether it is registered land or not. You can do that by checking online with the land registry, here:http://www.landregistry.gov.uk/You can click "order title deeds and registers online"If your property does not come up then it will not have been registered. Registration only became compulsory in 1989 but only upon sale. If it is registered, the land registry plan will show very clearly where the boundary is. If it is unregistered, you will need to consider the Deeds very carefully and try to establish from the plans in the Deeds, precisely where the boundary lies. The way to do that is to instruct a surveyor to come and look at the properties in conjunction with the Deeds and come up with a calculation of the boundary. That is exactly the process which has to be gone through when a property is first registered and the land registry plans are drawn up.
